North Fall is Copenhagen-based indie-rock/folk recording project of Anders Belling. He was making music under his own name starting in 2009. After he moved to Copenhagen, and after he started to gain some exposure, he decided to branch out and become a full band. In 2011, he started playing shows as North Fall.
Late last year, they released three digital singles, and tonight’s song was the first of that lot. Tonight’s song is also another one from the mailbag. Please continue to send things to the electronic and physical mail bags. You’ll find the addresses under the “mail bag” tab. Anyway, here’s tonight’s song.
“Protocol” by North Fall
According to the profile, the band draws inspiration from the likes of Bright Eyes, M. Ward, Pixies, The National, and Red House Painters. In the first half of the song, it’s easy to pick up the RHP influence.
As nice as Belling’s vocals are, my favorite bit of the song is the instrumental break from 2:07 to 2:44. It takes on a post-rock flavor right there, and I really like it. Very Explosions in the Sky. “Curve”, another song by North Fall has the same kind of thing near the end of the song.
I don’t have any idea what the plans are for future releases, but for now, you can download each of the three tracks from the North Fall soundcloud page.
Look for more awesome Danish stuff in the very near future.
